El Gato has a new product in the hopper today called the HDHomerun which is basically like a HD Slingbox for the home (or elsewhere if you are a VPN type).   It costs $180.

If you have a look a that logo up there,however, you’ll notice that there is a “powered by Silicon Dust” subtitle.

Silicon Dust has been making this exact same part and includes El Gato’s EyeTV Mac software as well since 2009. The original review of this product was on a G5.

And Silicon Dust sells it for $129 and less.  Zoikes.
